MSV Duisburg form and stats

The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for MSV Duisburg so far with only 3 points returning home. The records show 1-0-5 (win-draw-lose). Bitter travels for Duisburg as they have lost four games in a row away from home. The last time they avoided an away-from-home loss was the Osnabruck match.

The manager U. Schubert was unhappy after their last game, a 3. Liga match played at their home ground Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena. MSV Duisburg suffered a 0-1 loss to Meppen (placed 12th).

Preceding that game, the 2-4 loss visiting Viktoria Koln's place.
